  • Obama: Biden would make 'superb' president

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | July 21, 2014
    President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what's really important from what's less important. I think he's got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he's got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would be...

    From reducing student loan debt to expanding voter rights to dealing with the scourge of violent crime, liberals have laid out an ambitious agenda for the waning years of the Obama presidency. At a day-long summit Wednesday organized by Generation Progress, the youth division of the influential Washington-based think tank Center for American Progress, speakers such as Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi articulated their goals to a Washington audience of more than 1,000. Here are five issues that came up again and again at the Make Progress National Summit, and the...

    Washington DC: Vice President Joe Biden is chasing a bunch of kids with a water gun, no wait, they have started chasing him and the 71-year-old vice president is still fleet of foot. Now he’s telling the kids to turn the guns on the adults and they oblige and we all get drenched. If you want to know why those around Joe Biden love the VP so much then attend his annual summer barbecue at his residence in the grounds of the Naval Observatory in Washington and you will soon find out.

    Forget Elizabeth Warren. What the Democratic Party, and the nation, need is a real debate between Hillary Clinton's interventionism and the vice president's restraint. Joe Biden’s prospective presidential candidacy is in danger of becoming a joke. Every week, some new Democratic bigwig pledges himself to Hillary Clinton. Pro-Hillary groups have already assembled to fend off hostile campaign press. At last weekend’s White House Correspondents Dinner, President Obama added to the air of inevitability by teasing Fox News, “You’ll miss me when I’m gone. It’ll be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.” If there’s any...

    The Week ^ | May 2, 2013 | Keith Wagstaff
    A new Quinnipiac poll comparing potential Democratic candidates for 2016 comes to a familiar conclusion: Hillary Clinton, if she decides to run, would absolutely dominate the competition. The poll has 65 percent of potential Democratic voters picking Hillary Clinton as their presidential nominee in 2016. That's in line with multiple recent polls — including from Gallup, PPP, and PublicMind — showing Clinton as the overwhelming favorite in a Democratic primary. What's interesting about the Quinnipiac poll is that it conducted a separate survey in which Clinton was removed from the race. Which Democrats come out on top if Clinton decides...

Via the pool report: Piles of Bidens are here. In addition to Kathleen [Biden's daughter], VP Biden's wife Jill, his sons Beau and Hunter, and his granddaughters Maisy and Finnegan are also here.

    Alternate headline: “Liberals to discover strange new respect for ‘Natural Born’ Clause circa 2016/2020.” The newly sworn-in Texas senator and rising Republican star was born in Canada, to a mother who was born in Delaware and Cuban father. That’s triggered a debate about whether he’s eligible for the nation’s highest office — nevermind that he’s been in Congress less than a week. While there’s no legal precedent for Cruz’s situation, most constitutional scholars surveyed by POLITICO believe the 42-year-old tea party sensation would be OK. But there’s just enough gray area to stoke controversy, as Cruz learned during his campaign...

Reines had to move quickly to squelch the incessant media chatter about a Joe Biden exit for two simple reasons. One it’s not going to happen. Even if Hillary hadn’t repeatedly and vehemently said it wasn’t going to happen, history has shown presidents almost never dump their VPs in the midst of their reelection bid....

    Vice President Joe Biden, long known for making embarrassing verbal gaffes, echoed the cynical criticism many people levy against career politicians, stating he had stayed in the Senate for 36 years because he didn’t want to get “a real job.” Biden was speaking to a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, when he turned to praise the work of Richard M. Daley, the city’s former mayor of over 20 years. “I never had an interest in being a mayor, ’cause that’s a real job. You have to produce,” Biden said, according to a White House pool report. “That’s why I...

Beltway folks think that shows Mitt’s fear and ferocity, I think it shows him, again, as an animatron politician devoid of passion who’s stuck in the 1950s. Zany? Gidget was zany. Gingrich is a dangerous huckster, who will apparently say anything to get elected. Romney does seem desperate, whether his goofy language captures it or not. He rolled out an endorsement from the truly zany “I...

"Christine O'Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office," Meghan McCain said of her father's fellow Republican, who recently ran an ad declaring, "I'm not a witch." Appearing on ABC's "This Week," McCain said O'Donnell "has no real history, no real success in any kind of business." "And what that sends to my generation is (the message that) one day, you can just wake up and run for Senate, no matter...

Christine O’Donnell, the Republican candidate for the Senate seat that Vice-President Joe Biden held for 36 years, has been the biggest surprise of the 2010 mid-term election season. In two debates here this week with her Democratic opponent, Chris Coons, O’Donnell put up a creditable performance, avoiding the sort of outlandish statements about the evils of masturbation and mice with fully functioning human brains that...

You know how many of our band blasted Palin for anointing Christine O’Donnell in the Delaware Senate race, disregarding viability (or so it appeared)?

RINO #5 would join "Evita" Murkowski, RINO # 6, in the GOP Establishment War with the Tea Party. The nature of this election cycle is unparalleled viciousness, showcased by the extreme lengths that the dying GOP Establishment is willing to go to maintain their stranglehold on the party.

She is frightening, not just in her beliefs but in the scary fact that she could surprise us all and win. Democratic senate nominee Chris Coons is only leading by 11 points at the latest poll. And as we have seen recently, that lead can disappear in a heartbeat. A big factor in Coons shrinking lead is that O’Donnell is getting tons and tons of media attention.

    Christine O’Donnell is in a fantasy world. Literally. The pretty Palin Mini-Me identifies with the women of Middle Earth, comparing herself to the female characters in the “Lord of the Rings” novels by J. R. R. Tolkien. “Look at the significance that he gives to Eowyn, the Lady of Rohan,” O’Donnell said on C-Span in 2003. “She was a warrior spirit and, to me, that’s who I love. I mean, I aspire to be soft and gentle like Arwen, but realistically, I’m a fighter, like Eowyn.” O’Donnell said she liked Tolkien’s outlook on gender: “On the one hand, there’s the...

    O’Donnell’s victory in Delaware is already being credited to Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Movement, but more credit probably goes to a backlash against a GOP that provided a coronation to a liberal_Republican and used vicious and hate-filled tactics against his opponents, that doubtlessly reminded many Republicans of the tactics Democrats were using against Sarah Palin. I would much rather have had Hayworth knock out McCain, than have O’Donnell knock out Mike Castle. That would have removed one of the Senate’s biggest liberal Republicans, and would have probably given his obnoxious daughter the boot out of the spotlight too....

    Sarah Palin bet on Christine O'Donnell, and the victory enhances Palin's stature inside the Republican Party in that straightforward way. More important, it shows that a candidate with her political weaknesses, only much more so -- questions about qualifications, experience, and a confrontational partisan profile, plus some sexism -- can win a Republican Party primary pretty much anywhere. That's all good for Palin, and good for her prospects in particular of being her party's 2012 nominee. I also can't help being reminded today by the storm of media and money on both sides of Palin's own rollout. O'Donnell, various outlets...

    08/11/2010 11:56:17 AM PDT · by donjuanluis07 · 3 replies ^ | Aug 11, 2010 | donjuan
    Now RINOs are voting to send more money to poor teachers (union bosses). Following the leadership of House Speaker Nancy Peloski (D-CA), RINOs Joseph Cao (R-LA) [#14 RINO] and Mike Castle (R-DE) [#5 RINO] voted to approve of Federal Aid to Education Jobs, which in reality will be gobbled up by teacher's union bosses to be used in Democrat Election Races.

    Boot Mike Castle ^ | July 9, 2010 | Frank
    It would seem as if Rep. Mike Castle is pretty good at the political game of earmarks. He has sponsored or co-sponsored fifty-one earmarks totaling $51,874,600 for the fiscal year of 2010. This number gets him a ranking of 43rd out of 435 representatives.That puts him in the top ten percent of earmark spending. Now there’s something to be proud of.

    I have been doing some reading on this subject maybe someone can shed some light on this I have found that our President is being taken to court for the fact that he is not who he says he is and Dr Manning is going to court for this matter. I am very shocked that this is a big subject but Dr Manning has a trial going on and I listened to his radio show online and they spoke about President Obama was known in Canada as Barry Soetoro, if this is not true then why is Dr Manning not...

    National Public Radio ^ | November 2, 2009 | Mark Memmott
    Vice President Joe Biden and the woman who ran against him last year did some long-distance sparing today. Biden, at a rally for New York congressional Democratic contender Bill Owens, took a verbal shot at former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who's a supporter of Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman in Tuesday's crazy special election for New York's 23rd district (where Republican nominee Dede Scozzafava has dropped out and endorsed the Democrat). Using energy as an issue with which to score some rhetorical points, Biden said that "the fact of the matter is, Sarah Palin thinks the answer to energy is...

    Talking Points Memo ^ | October 6, 2009 | Eric Kleefeld
    The GOP has had five possible candidates: State Rep. Tom Kovach, who is close to Castle; businessman Anthony Wedo; Ferris Wharton, a former prosecutor who narrowly lost to Beau Biden for state Attorney General in 2006; former U.S. Attorney Colm Connolly; and former state Senate Minority Leader Charlie Copeland. "I don't want to make it seem like once we have a candidate, that candidate will be a frontrunner," the source said. "I think everyone knows it will be an uphill battle to hold the seat. But I feel confident that we can run a credible candidate and run a vigorous...

    The Hill ^ | April 15, 2009 | Aaron Blake
    Delaware’s former Democratic lieutenant governor announced Wednesday he will challenge Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.), who is thought to be mulling a run for the Senate. The decision by former Lt. Gov. John Carney (D) could provide a tougher fight for Castle, who cruised to reelection in 2008 with 61 percent of the vote even as President Obama won 62 percent of the vote in Delaware. Democrats have talked frequently about mounting a challenge to Castle, given the Democratic lean of his statewide district. Carney is fresh off a loss in the gubernatorial primary and a failed effort to get appointed...

    The Washington Post ^ | September 10, 2008 | Anne E. Kornblut
    <p>The Secret Service has selected a fitting enough code name for Gov. Sarah Palin: "Denali," same as the Alaska national park and preserve famed for its mountain peaks and wildlife.</p> <p>Perhaps even more perfect is their code name for former oil slope worker Todd Palin -- "Driller." McCain and Palin have made drilling for oil a central part of their platform, so much so that "Drill, baby, drill!" is now a regular McCain-Palin rally chant.</p>

    Scared Monkeys ^ | September 7, 2008
    Now that’s a bounce and a half … Obama, Biden, the LEFT and the MSM can complain all they want in their efforts to discredit Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin, the truth of the matter is that their efforts are failing and the favorable trend of the McCain/Biden ticket is on the up-swing. The LEFT does not have the right to tell McCain how he is to run their campaign … Obama and his crew only have the right and ability to run theirs in the manner they seem fit. In all honesty, the Obama campaign has been run terribly...

    The Sussex Countian ^ | July 23, 2008 | Adam Huber
    It’s four years later and Bill Lee hasn’t missed a beat. Lee, who narrowly lost a run for governor in 2004 to Ruth Ann Minner, was in Georgetown Tuesday morning to kickoff his gubernatorial campaign. The prayer breakfast at the Georgetown Family Restaurant was the first of nine stops, across all three counties, and marked the beginning of what Lee hopes will be a different outcome this time around. “When I made the intelligent decision not to run, the convention challenged that decision,” Lee said at the Sussex GOP headquarters prior to the breakfast. “I’m grateful they did.” Although Lee...
